Can The Rays Hold On Despite All The Injuries?

The Tampa Bay Rays have finished off a stretch of playing 30 games in the last 31 days, but have continues to see more key contributors end up on the injured list.  Steve Carney discusses how the the Rays can continue to stay competitive in the American League East until the pendulum starts to swing the other way when it comes to injuries.  He also gives you his thoughts on Albert Pujols, who was let go by the Los Angeles Angels earlier this week while the Rays were in Anaheim.

Plus, the Durham Bulls are off to a great start in their season.  Steve gives you the top five players he’d like to see get their first big-league call up, and outlines a scenario in which consensus top prospect Wander Franco might not be the first player called up to the majors.
